Description

Welcome to Portofino, a formerly quiet seaside village that is now a must-see destination if you are in this area of Italy. It is beloved for its colorful houses and quaint fishing harbor, among other things. The natural harbor supports a fleet of fishing boats, and for many years fishing was the town's chief industry. It is also well known for the creation of an extremely fine lace, which can still be purchased in certain shops.

Your knowledgeable English-speaking driver will enlighten you about all of the best sites of this charming place, giving you plenty of time to visit the famous Piazzetta, shop at the exclusive boutiques, check out the local church, and explore this one-of-a-kind community.

Over the years, Portofino has been host to many celebrities. The Duke and Duchess of Windsor enjoyed their honeymoon at the Hotel Splendido, the same place where Richard Burton proposed to Elizabeth Taylor years later. The town became so popular that, by 1950, tourism supplanted fishing as the town's chief industry, and today the waterfront is full of restaurants and cafés, as well as chic boutiques.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
